  1. Hi, Everything looks weird. Display pictures? CSE being dead? My old Asian challenge being dead? Is MLS still bugged in the latest FMs. Still no interest in buying FM. See some familiar faces though. Really have only talked with Forest and Crouchy since I left. I still have a lot more posts than some of you. Jeez. Goodbye till 2018.
  2. You better sign a lot of Canadians. Or I will riot.
  3. The obvious choice is your username. I'll have a lot of fun making decisions to wind you up about your favourite club.
  4. Sometimes, you gotta do things you might not like, so I suggest.....TORONTO FC. Due to my fierce dislike of managing any team in England (which you should clearly know by now ), I suggest Gillingham.
  5. It would be nice if teams had personal draftboards and if a team felt that 'their guy' would get picked before their turn, they would try to trade up. Would also like a live draft (like in fantasy drafts) but that's a totally different suggestion.
  6. I use training camp to look at the fringe players and guys who might make my 3rd or 4th line. Would love for a live draft at the NHL and Junior levels. Something like fantasy baseball (if you ever done a live draft you will understand).
  7. RIP to NF's Wooster managerial tenure. I hope you got a coupon from Vanarama at least to help you move your stuff to a new club.
  8. Really hope that the FM confidence system and contracts are in the new EHM. It's very easy to get sacked even as the Sabres. You don't see Tim Murray sacked before the new year in 2015 IRL...
  9. Ignore all the crazy talk and allure of FMCU threads and join the side in SI that is EHM.
  10. Don't play FM anymore, but still don't mind popping in from the EHM forum. Good luck with Wooster. And good to see you're still applying for jobs left and right when you have no chance of getting any one of them. Not a NF thread without that.
  11. Without Steam, there's no EHM: EA. So if you want to support this game, use Steam.
  12. Holy crap, two other Torontonians! It's really great to see some reviews of the new EHM already. Even Eurogamer has an article on it.
  13. Been a while, but please support EHM: Early Access, if you are a hockey fan!!!
  14. Thank you SI. Thank you thank you!!!!!!!! Goodbye FM, hello EHM.
  15. Same here NF, same here...I just liked other games a lot more than FM. Now time for you to have the same interests as me.
  16. Real Oviedo SAD - 2024/25 Liga BBVA Offseason Transfers - Spain Commercial Summary My third off-season here and my second in La Liga. With a lot more money to play with, it's a good opportunity to go get some quality additions to the squad. Transfers Souleymane Gana - Not the quickest player out there, but he has strong technicals for a defender and at a very good wage as well. Severin Diomande - We hopefully got our RM spot wrapped up with this signing. Born in the Ivory Coast but spent his entire European career (nearly 6 years) in Israel and got Israeli citizenship. Yanis Amran
  17. Thanks ghostwriter. And yes good eye it is that club with a tycoon. They are splashing cash everywhere. Amazing that they weren't even playable until 2021/22, and 3 years later they are in Europe and in the Europa League Group Stage. They have spent around $84 million in 3 seasons and seem to be the most active among the tycoon clubs in terms of spending. Ross County are a distant second and they got relegated from the Scottish Premiership this past season.
  18. Thanks Santa, I'm a millionaire now (pre-tax of course ). A new 4 year, $4.4 million contract, with incentives that could push the deal to $5.2 million to continue on as manager of Real Oviedo, with requested increases in wage budget, transfer budget, youth recruitment, and feeder club (hopefully it's not a 4th/5th Spanish one this time)!
  19. Merry Christmas, even though it's not the 25th yet here.
  20. Usually yes, unless it's a big club that goes down. Annoying. Not so annoying that he left for his release clause (which thankfully the supporters understand that ), but that I have to scramble to find a replacement for him.
  21. Sevilla weren't doing so well the past few seasons and Valencia were in Adelante last season (5th) so it's not that surprising they got relegated in my save. The previous guy at Oviedo actually went to Sevilla (since sacked), so I have to thank him for that at least. I was very surprised that we hung above midtable and in an EL spot for such a long time. It was good for us to have a couple long runs in the league where we got at least one point. Second season should hopefully be even better with some of the signings I made.
  22. Real Oviedo SAD - 2024/25 La Liga Pre-season - Spain Fans' Player of the Year - Luis Novoa - no surprise here. TV Rights: $29.06 million (upfront payment of $14.53 million, with the rest paid throughout the season) Transfer Budget: $26 million (up from $8.25 million last season ) Wage Budget: $16.59 million (currently spending $13,579,249) - up only $4 million from previous year's budget of $12.65 million La Liga Expectations: Mid-table finish Copa del Rey Expectations: Reach 5th Round UEFA Europa League Expectations: Be Competitive Going to be another busy off-season as we reto
  23. A bit crazy, but I will reject this offer.. Nothing against Ajax, but I managed there in FM14. And I've only been at Oviedo for a bit over 2 years.
